In April 1999, Stephan Gladiadis incorporated Big Iron Ltd, which takes its name from a colloquial term for a mainframe computer typically operating in an IT environment known for its structure, rock-solid dependability and high performance – traits which accurately describe Stephan’s unique approach to delivering quality services and solutions to the small and medium business sector in New Zealand.

Over the course of his career, Stephan has worked as an IT professional specialising in systems management across a diverse range of industry sectors and IT environments in New Zealand, Australia and the Middle East.
